ULCT Introduces Electronic Approval for Admission to Border Control Zone.

Ust Luga Container Terminal (ULCT, a Global Ports group company) became the first Russian container terminal to introduce a technology of electronic approval of requests for admission to the border control zone. This unique project substantially simplifies the documents clearance procedure.

The new procedure allows customers to remotely obtain passes to the border control zone. This will eliminate the need for visits to the authorities’ offices at ULCT’s premises before bringing a container to/from the terminal and will therefore save customers a lot of time.

The new technology, allows customers to send the required documents electronically via the terminal’s information system, with staff of the authorities approving requests online.

This technology solution was developed by LLC ROLIS, a Global Ports group company, which focuses on terminal management information systems. The technology was implemented as part of Global Ports’ broader program of migrating to an electronic document exchange system.


Ust Luga Container Terminal (ULCT, Global Ports group) is the first deep water container terminal in the North-West of Russia. The current capacity of the terminal is 440,000 TEUs. The terminal is located 100 km to the west of Saint Petersburg in the territory of a new sea commercial port Ust Luga in the Luga Bay of the Gulf of Finland. This is a joint project of Global Ports group (80%) and Eurogate (20%), a leading European container terminal operator.
